"The first time I returned to Lancaster was for my brother's funeral.
The second time was for Myra." 

For twelve years, I lived alone in my cabin, building a life with my two bare hands. I was free from their rules, their policies, and their lies.
They are a cult.
My father is their leader.
To protect my brother's widow, I'm making her my wife. It's her only way out.
But drawn to the purity in her deep blue eyes and the innocence of her gentle voice, I wonder if I'm not the biggest monster of them all. I have to save her from them and myself. Because every second I spend with this timid woman, I fight the urge to claim her.
Own her.
Make her truly mine.
And I know it's wrong.
I will break her fall—if I don't break her first.

Is a full length romance novel in M. Mabie’s ‘The Breaking Trilogy' series. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ 

Abraham aka Abe left all his cult family behind years ago due to not believing in their religious way of living which his father is the leader of many years ago, never thinking he’d ever step foot on his home soil again until one phone call from his mother who he still talks to changed everything begging him to come home due to his brother passing away from a heart attack. The two brothers were close when they were younger but as the years progressed that bond fell away and they never spoke after Abe left the cult. 

Abe returns to Lancaster for the funeral but he wants to get the day over and done with as soon as possible so that he can go back to where he truly belongs. But he never counted on Myra, his brother's widow, something about her calls to something within him.

I belonged alone. In the woods with tools in my hands. I belonged in the quiet company of trees and nature, with books, music and my own thoughts.
I was born to be free, and that's how I lived for the past decade 

Myra has lived in Lancaster her whole life and knows nothing of the outside world, she'd been groomed into submission, but when Abe comes to help her she starts to slowly see things in a new light, slowly she starts to question things, he wanted to help her choose her own path as he did and that she had more choices other than the ones the cult had presented to her. 

She was beautiful and lost and deserved her freedom. Because she would waste away in that town. Because I knew what it was like to be forced into something I didn't want. because I remembered how isolated it was. Because I'd been through it all on my own even when I wasn't sure if I'd make it or not. because it was possible to leave-and survive-and I wondered if she realised it.

I absolutely loved the slowness of Abe and Myra's relationship, the author set the pace perfectly, her need to please, there were so many aspects that I enjoyed about this book, the fact that it wasn't insta was a huge tick for me.

I'd left because I hated Lancaster and everything it stood for. She left because she thought she was fulfilling her duty as a woman of God. 

This unexpectedly took me by surprise, admittedly it took me a while to get into, but then all the feels in the world came at me out of nowhere, I loved these two characters, I didn't want it to end, and then I reach that very last chapter and I'm hit with that cliffy, no next book to pull me over it until October, anything surrounding cults and I jump on it, I love the almost taboo orthodox stigma that is attached to them, outsiders are not welcome, I enjoyed Abel taking up Myra's corner and making her see that she had other choices other than the ones presented to her, her struggles to learn how to live in the outside world, I loved seeing the world through her eyes, we could see the changes happening chapter by chapter, I rooted for these two characters, and I couldn't get enough of them. I can't wait to see what kind of journey the next book takes us on!!
